We hired Chef Rich and his team to cater my husband's 40th birthday party. His team serviced 60 of my guests. The full catering service included delivery/pickup of rental equipment, setup , clean up, servers, & a bartendar. They're service made the day/night enjoyable as they took care of everything including picking up the ice, mixers, etc. All i had to do was ask. The food they prepared was delicious, we had a combination of meat appetizers and vegetarian appetizers. The guests thoroughly enjoyed the food. The only thing i would have changed was to have the servers pass out the food more consistently to my guests rather than having it placed on a table in the corner as it quickly got cold and perhaps didn't taste as good as it would have hot/warm. Other than that my experience with Chef's Most Wanted Catering & Chef Services was outstanding. I would definitely use their services again for both big and small events. Thank you for making the night a success!

It is difficult to put into words how grateful I am that I found North Island Catering. From the beginning to the end Allen and Christina were wonderful to work with. Allen went above and beyond what a good catering company should do. We needed a caterer for my daughter's wedding. North Island catering was one of the several companies that responded to my request on Thumbtack. When I contacted them they were very helpful and was able to give me a price within our budget. Our menu would consist of fajitas and tacos with all the fixings and would be buffet style setting. From the taste test to the wedding they were very professional and catered to all the dietary needs of our guests. Once we finalized the guest list we decided to do tacos for 50, fajitas for 90 and vegetarian fajitas for 10 people. They were able to accommodate for the vegetarian guests and the gluten free guests. Even when I forgot to mention one of the condiments we wanted Allen was on his toes. I had missed letting him know that we wanted hot peppers on the side. He thought ahead and got them anyways. I contacted him the day before the wedding about the peppers. He informed me that he had already purchased them. I was so impressed that he anticipated our needs ahead of time. They arrived at the reception on time and were all set up in the time frame that they had stated. Allen and his crew were very professional in letting the guests know which foods were vegetarian and which foods were gluten free. I received several comments from guests on how good the food was and how nice it was to have so many options for the different dietary needs of each of the guests. It made the guests feel like they were each thought of individually and that their dietary needs were important to North Island Catering. When everyone was finished eating they packaged up the leftover food for us to take home all without any disturbance to the rest of the reception going on. I was very impressed with how smoothly everything ran and how they helped make my daughter's special day a success. During conversations with Allen and Christina I got the impression that their specialty was Italian food. They did an outstanding job preparing the Mexican food we requested. I feel that they would do an outstanding job in preparing any type of food requested. I would definitely work with this company again in the future.

Trying to plan a banquet from a thousand miles away, in a problematic downtown Chicago location, is not an easy task. Luckily for me, I found Ravi at Chic Chef Catering here on Thumbtack. Ravi took care of everything, handling all the location's inherent difficulties competently and professionally. He stayed with his staff for the entire event, and made sure all of our 80+ guests were happy and well-fed. More importantly, I didn't need to worry about the caterers and the food and all the rest of it, because it was all in his capable hands. I could instead focus on our guests. We chose a Mediterranean menu--with a vegetarian option to meet some of our guests' needs. Everything was delicious and there was plenty of it! Many thanks and much appreciation to Ravi and his crew! We would absolutely use Chic Chef Catering again!

We chose Inglenook Catering because of their sky-high reviews, and I am so glad we did! They live up to their incredible reputation. We hired Inglenook for our wedding reception. We went with the Standard Buffet for 70 people and added an additional side. The food was delicious. Our guests were impressed across the board....even our vegetarian, gluten-free, and "foodie" friends. Also, the portions were spot on. We had some leftovers of everything so I know everyone got enough to eat. The team was punctual and efficient in their arrival, setup, and breakdown. Joe, the owner, was delightful to work with! He was warm, helpful, and patient. We had many questions and went back and forth as to which package to choose and Joe was great about answering all of our questions and helping figure out what was right for us. He was very thorough in his descriptions and we never felt "sold to." Our booking was a relatively small and simple one, but he treated us like we were his number one client. Their pricing is completely translucent with no hidden fees, and we felt we got a steal-of-deal because their food quality and service is so high. I would trust and recommend Inglenook for any event big or small!

I've used Just a Bite several times to cater parties. The owner is extremely easy to work with and made great menu suggestions. My events had themes and the food was perfectly matched to the theme. The food was beautifully presented and tasted great. I know things are made from scratch with quality ingredients and you can taste the difference. Nothing makes a hostess feel better than having guests say positive things about the food, and that happens every time I use this caterer. Most importantly, the owner delivered beyond my expectations and stayed within my budget. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this caterer to friends and family.

We had Cater 2 U help with a wine and cheese mixer for future employees and they did an excellent job. The food was great and the service was even better. The staff did a great job making sure food and drinks stayed fresh and refilled. Chef Mike really did an amazing job with the food and easily helped put together a few vegetarian options for us that everyone enjoyed. I will definitely be using their services again.

I have used Chef Aram Reed for 3 dinner parties in the last year and have alway been extremely impressed by the food and the service. The food is extremely delicious and elegantly displayed. By the end of the night, it seems like all my guests want to know the name of my caterer. Aram also brings well trained helpers who seem to be able to read my mind on what needs to be done before, during and after the party. I highly recommend Chef Aram and his team!

KIRK CHEF IS AMAZING! For Christmas our son and daughter-in-law gave us a gift certificate for a private home chef experience. Chef Kirk called us 4 days before our scheduled evening to ask us our food preferences and/or food allergies. The evening of, Chef arrived on time with everything he needed to prepare a 6 course gourmet meal. The only things we needed to provide were flatware and plates. He gave us the option of sitting at our kitchen peninsula or in our dining room. We chose the interactive experience without a second thought. We watched Chef prepare a starter of crab cakes with capers, roasted garlic, lemon and fresh herbs served with cranberry walnut bread. The next course was a salad with roasted pear and pomegranate. Then we had seared sea scallops. Keep in mind that we have not gotten to the entree yet. The main course was blackened salmon with plantains and crispy kale. Dessert was a chocolate mousse with vanilla panna cotta and mango gelato. The transitions between courses were seamless. THIS WAS A 5 STAR MEAL!

Damian Rocked it!!!! He was so accommodating from the very first phone call we had. He also was willing to make changes at the last minute when some of our guests requested gluten free and vegetarian options. Nothing rattled him. Damian is a gem. The food was delicious and he was lovely to work with. I couldn't say enough good things.

I had the absolute blind luck to find the lovely Heather and D'Andre of Feast & Imbibe while looking for alternatives to typical "chicken or beef" caterers for my June 2014 wedding. I had already decided that I wanted to do an upscale cocktail reception in lieu of a seated dinner, and had quotes for over $10,000 for 80 people (and this was from a place that wanted to serve quesadillas and fried food as apps--that's fine, but not for ten grand and not at all what I was looking for). I couldn't see spending money like that on food that was impersonal and trite, and I began to look for a private chef or other alternatives to a standard wedding caterer. I honestly and truly feel lucky to have found Feast & Imbibe, as they allowed me to have everything exactly the way I wanted for an extremely reasonable price. You could really taste the thought, love and care in D'Andre's food--for real. I had some ideas in mind in terms of the feel of the menu, but I have to say that Heather and D'Andre totally blew me away and knocked it out of the park. From our first interaction, Heather was warm and professional and extremely honest about everything. I told her what I wanted and what I could spend, and she and D'Andre were willing to work with me to provide the experience I was looking for (and they ended up putting together a reception that was more than I could have asked for) for the price I wanted (I ended up spending a bit more than I envisioned, but it was purely due to MY changes--never experienced any pressure or felt like I was being pushed into anything). Heather was SO SO helpful; seeing as how I was doing most things myself, she offered herself and her services at any point she could to make things easier on me-- advice for other vendors, her own decorations, etc. AND THE FOOD...OMG D'Andre...keep on doin' what you're doin', becuase it's a month later and my guests are still talking about how amazing the food was. The food was so on point, the service was so thoughtful, and the selection was incredible. I was able to impress and please both my foodie friends and my meat and potatoes family--which is a serious feat itself. Everything about the actual day of my wedding was kind of a mess (weather, venue issues, mix-ups out of anyone's control), but the supreme service, hospitality and care that Heather and D'Andre put into catering my event absolutely made up for everything that went wrong. They were able to circumnavigate last minute issues with no problem or loss of cool, and everything down to the waitstaff and decor/signs for the food were top notch. My husband and I truly felt that they had our best interests at heart and put love into what they did for us, and we are eternally grateful. I could not have asked for more, and I will be recommending their services to anyone who will listen until I am blue in the face. Seriously, people, if you want the utmost in professionalism, care, delicious food, value for the $$--please go with Feast & Imbibe. They are amazing to say the least!! I would never even consider working with another caterer.

Kristin has catered many events for me...from intimate family holiday dinners to a buffet for over 100 people. She is very professional and fun to work with. But most importantly her food is delicious and the presentation is outstanding. I've known Kristin for at least 10 years. I highly recommend her!

I would like to thank you for catering my birthday party. Your menu is impressive and I was happy to see you were able to cook meal choices not on your menu. Your prices was very reasonable for the amount of people you prepared food for. Everyone that attended said your food was great and I will agree.You and your staff were very professional and showed true meaning to serves with a smile. I was impressed, I have your card, I will be in touch.

Cheffield Events & Catering has to be one of the best caterers we have hired for the office. The food smelled and tasted amazing. Everyone was going back for seconds and thirds!!! We are a picky bunch, but we will be using Cheffield's in the future. They were prompt, professional and the presentations was great. We loved that they printed up a menu for our small gathering. We would recommend Cheffield Events & Catering for catering, and we hope to do many events with them.

I have dined with Mark at several of his pop ups, and have hired him to cater a major fundraising event. Even with a near-last minute request, Mark and his team were beyond professional - they were charming, funny, and our guests loved interacting with them nearly as much as they loved the delicious meal! He catered to our dietary restrictions without issue, and the overall quality of the experience was unmatched. If I could give more than 5 stars, I wouldn't hesitate.

Taryn is a well organized, professional, and highly talented chef. Her food is fresh, creative, and absolutely delicious! She knows how to make healthy yet decadent food, but if you want to experience the full range of her cooking, let her use butter! I've used her for my last two dinner parties and will not go back to catering or any other private chef again. She has them all beat.

We can't say enough good things about Maya and her team at BellaRu. We first contacted her in April 2017 for a tasting. We probably should have been more prepared when we arrived but Maya was completely professional and helped us go through our event and what we may have overlooked or not thought to include. She helped us with family and friends who were vegetarian, gluten free and dairy free. During our walk through she went above and beyond catering by helping us with logistics, floor plans, timeline, signage, cake cutting and everything else we could have potentially forgotten. Her team was courteous and professional, they set up on time and had our four courses out exactly on schedule, the food was delicious and the take down at the end of the night was quick and unobtrusive. She even offered us a ride after the wedding when we realized we had no way to get to the hotel with some large items. Thank you so much Maya for all your hard work. Our wedding weekend is still being talked about and was considered a huge hit thanks in no small part to Maya and BellaRu.

My Friends and family gathering are always a reason to have My Girls Soul Food and Barbecue on hand. Ms. Loretta is the best when it comes to Soul food and my all time favorite is her Mixed Greens. I never get tired of them. If you are looking for a meal that will make you smile from ear to ear, this is the 5 star Soul Food Caterer of Choice!
